About Thrive Yoga & Pilates

The personal yoga school of Amsterdam Oost

Thrive is more than 'just' a yoga studio, more than that it offers a place where you feel at home and at ease. Get away from the daily grind for a yoga or Pilates class in a small group, a moment with attention for yourself, your moment. That is also the place that founder and owner of Thrive,  Marco Rodie envisioned to create in 2012. After a career in the Royal Netherlands Navy and in business, he wants as many people as possible to experience what Yoga can mean in everyday life. Inspired by the styles of Vinyasa (Jivamukti) Yoga and Yin Yoga, the studio specializes in classes that combine both the relaxation of Yin and the power of Yang.


The name Thrive comes from the verb “to thrive” which means as much as “flourish, flourish, grow, become aware”. Thrive Yoga offers opportunities for individual growth and development so that you can live your life healthier and more consciously.

“Let's Thrive together!”

What makes Thrive special according to founder Marco Rodie?

“Thrive distinguishes itself through its personal approach. For example, a mat and props are ready for you when you enter, the studio is attractively lit and you are welcomed by your name by the teacher. Because we work with small groups, the teacher knows most of the participants. You will also receive personal instructions during the lesson and the teacher will walk through the room to give physical 'assists'. At Yoga we always pay attention to the yoga philosophy in addition to natural aspects such as the breath, movement and meditation. After class, the teacher serves a cup of tea and there is plenty of time for questions and a chat."

I have followed yoga classes at about 10 different yoga schools in Amsterdam. With every move I changed, but my yoga style needs also changed in recent years. Thrive Yoga is my absolute favorite so far. The school offers both an intensive form of yoga (Vinyasa and Jivamukti) and a softer form (Yin yoga). The combination of the yoga styles, the small classes, the experienced teachers, and the fact that you can also follow good Pilates classes, makes Thrive Yoga special to me. I always appreciated the extra attention in the form of lit candles and a cup of tea served on the mat at the end of the lesson. There are all kinds of subscriptions available and I also find the trial subscriptions very attractive. If you want to experience more peace, work on your body and like to do so in a super nice environment, this is your place.

After many trial lessons at various yoga studios in Amsterdam, I finally ended up at Thrive and it immediately felt right! The atmosphere is pleasant and relaxed, the instructors friendly and all have their own teaching style, so there is something for everyone. It's also nice that you can sit with a cup of tea after class and let the effect of the lesson work on you.

Thrive is a very nice yoga studio. Many good teachers, small groups and a wide range of lessons. The music and smell during the classes remind me a lot of the yoga retreat I once did in Nepal, so I imagine myself back in that moment during every class! A lot of personal attention for the postures, but also the theory behind yoga is treated. I have been coming here for years with great pleasure 🙂

I have been a loyal customer of Thrive for years. They are lovely studios with a nice varied offer at all times of the day. Even since the lockdown, I still faithfully follow an online class every week and occasionally parent-child yoga. Right now with that sitting at home, it is extra nice and important to keep doing yoga. Thrive has set up the online classes well and professionally, they remain of a high level and easy to follow and although online will never match a studio experience of course, it comes close!

I already had some experience with yoga but at the beginning of 2020 I decided to give it more space in my life and I bought the block for 5 trial classes near me at the Thrive studio on Ijburg. I immediately felt welcome because of the warm and positive energy in this cozy studio and the personal attention you receive during the lessons, but also with regard to any administrative questions you are immediately helped by the great team. The variety of yoga classes (also some great pilates classes, by the way) offered for all different levels and the skilled and super nice teachers in a comfortable and personal setting really impressed me from the start. Now, after becoming a regular yoga practitioner for over a year, I can say without hesitation that yoga has really changed my life and that the wonderful team at Thrive has (had) a real impact on my journey.

After trying just about all yoga schools in Amsterdam, I came back to Thrive. Super good teachers, personal attention, nice atmosphere in the beautifully decorated studios... I wouldn't want anything else! There is also a wide variety of lessons on offer so that there is always a lesson for you. I can't help but recommend this studio!
